Leah Levine has always broken the glass ceiling by pushing the boundaries around her. A native of Oakland, California, she embarked on a fashion career after graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA. Throughout her seven years in Los Angeles, she became an expert in fashion sales, public relations, buying and merchandising through work with Urban Outfitters, TJ Maxx, People’s Revolution and more. With the rise of social media in the fashion world, Leah knew there was more opportunity ahead, so in mid-2015, she packed up her life and moved to France to attend the American University of Paris. She graduated in 2017 with a bachelor’s in global communications and relaunched her career with BBDO, TBWA, L’Oreal and the Coty brands. Leah worked backstage at myriad fashion shows during numerous Paris Fashion weeks with names like Raf Simons, Ami Paris, the Brock Collection and Hellessy.
“There's a new day full of new possibilities ahead. Yesterday is in the past, today is happening and tomorrow, you might change the world,” she says. “Success is the small wins. The moments when you don't think it's going to happen. All of those little triumphs come together to achieve the big goal.”
After spending almost four years in France, it was time for Leah to return home to California and become the ultimate creative chameleon, utilizing her skills to help share stories of creativity and innovation. Silicon Valley had once seemed like a distant world, but the tide had turned, and she soon landed a role with Wish, followed by her current position as marketing manager at Uber.Find her on Instagram | LinkedIn
